The Organization’s community-build model enables diverse groups of volunteers to collaborate toward a collective cause – the well-being of children – by completing a tangible product – a new playground – in a fixed time period of one day that will make an immediate and lasting difference for decades to come. The Organization invites grant applications from communities anywhere in the United States working to establish joint use agreements to re-open playground and recreational facilities previously unavailable due to safety and upkeep concerns. The Let’s Play Land Use grants will support creation of joint-use agreements between local governments and school districts that address cost concerns related to safety, vandalism, maintenance, and liability issues to re-open previously unavailable playgrounds and recreational facilities. Grants of $15,000 will support the opening of at least four playgrounds in cities with populations of less than 100,000 people. Grants of $30,000 will support the opening of at least eight playgrounds in larger communities. Additional information on the requirements as well as application guidelines can be found on the Web site.
